A great loop for riders looking for some variety or to extend their normal ride.
This largely intermediate (grade 3) loop descends from the summit down Upper Leaping Lizard and the easier top portion of Leaping Lizard into the south west corner of the park. It then traverses on Supa Kanuka before climbing back to the summit via Aratihi.
Estimated riding time of 30 to 45 minutes depending on fitness and skill level.
